Support students

The University of Minnesota's Learners to Leaders: Drive for University of Minnesota Students, is aimed at supporting future leaders, so they can reach their full potential. 

Gifts to this effort directly support the University’s five-year strategic plan, MPact 2025, by inspiring support to the University’s top priorities for students:

  • Remove financial barriers to make a quality education accessible to all talented, deserving students.
  • Foster equity and inclusivity through systemic change and opportunities that attract, support, and graduate more underrepresented students.
  • Support the whole student by enhancing the student experience and strengthening support services and resources.

"In today’s rapidly changing world, meeting the needs of all students where they are and maximizing their skills, potential, and well-being has never been more important. Through our Learners to Leaders campaign, we are amplifying this deep commitment and our broader focus through MPact 2025 to promote greater success and impact for every student across our system."
